People, and their plants, absolutely love it

Don't take our word for it, hear from the people that use coconut compost

“Well managed coconut compost provides an excellent environment for root development. Our experience with peat-based compost showed the results were inferior to coir due to the fact that peat is denser thus hindering healthy root development and root death. With careful water management, we are seeing extremely vigorous root growth which of course equates to a healthier stronger plant.”

Perthshire, Commercial Strawberry Grower

“Here at Mains of Errol Farm we have chosen coconut compost as our growing medium for the last 10 years for 4 main reasons, it's affordable, compact, productive and sustainable. A compact product allows savings from haulage right the way through to handling by hand on the farm. High productivity achieved using coconut compost in our experience comes from the medium's unparalleled ability to suspend a feed solution evenly from top to bottom throughout the height of our root structure.”

Jamie, Perthshire, Commercial Strawberry Grower

“Just add water - who knew! Really like this product as it is so simple to use and no need to lug great big bags of compost around which always spilled in the car making mess. It’s been great for my tomatoes and chillies – I just added my own fertiliser. So easy and highly recommend it.”

Sally, East Lothian, Gardener

“I live in a flat with not much light and used the coconut compost for sowing my herbs last year with the aid of a growlight and they are still going strong. I don’t have a garden and the box is really easy to store in a cupboard and there is minimal mess. Brilliant for town living.”

Caroline, Edinburgh, Indoor Gardener

“For seed sowing it is brilliant. Compressed and light to carry and only need to add warm water for it to expand. It couldn’t be easier and more practical. Thank goodness no more heavy bags to carry.”

Lucy, Edinburgh, Indoor Gardener
